A Dartmouth teen has been ordered for a psychiatric assessment after pleading guilty yesterday to sexually assaulting a cat and a woman.

The 16-year-old, who can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, pleaded guilty to five charges yesterday in Halifax youth court, including bestiality and sexual assault of a woman.

Sentencing is scheduled for June 9.

According to the CBC, four of the charges the teen pleaded guilty to relate to incidents from last October involving a woman. They are sexual assault, assault, forcible entry into a home and breaching probation.

The other guilty plea came from an incident on Jan. 16 when the boy sexually abused his family cat.

According to the CBC, the psychiatric assessment is to determine whether the youth can be placed in the Initiative for Sexually Aggressive Youth, a treatment program at the IWK Health Centre for youth with sexually inappropriate behaviour.
